Christopher Meloni is set to revive his Law & Order: SVU character Elliot Stabler, in a new spin-off under producer Dick Wolf.
The series has received a 13-episode order from NBC.
It will reportedly follow Stabler as he heads up the organised crime division of the NYPD, with Matt Olmstead (Chicago P.D., Prison Break, NYPD Blue) as showrunner.
Meloni (Oz, Happy!, Underground, Pose, The Handmaid’s Tale) departed SVU at the end of Season 12 in 2011.
NBC and Universal Television declined to comment.
